• Paul Jacobs, one of the most dynamic performers in today’s organ world, presents a concert at St. John’s on Sunday, September 24, at 3:00 pm. Co-sponsored by the church and the Sacramento chapter of the American Guild of Organists, Paul is at the very pinnacle of his profession and the first organist to win a Grammy for his work.


  • St. John’s is fortunate to have Kat LaTurneau as our bookkeeper/accountant, helping us serve as effective stewards of our financial assets. While a recent addition to our staff, she has quickly become a treasured colleague.


  • Along with numerous other ELCA congregations throughout the country, on Sunday, September 10, St. John’s will be participating in and celebrating “God’s work. Our hands” Sunday. The day begins by celebrating worship at 9:00 am, followed by our members heading out into the community to serve for a few hours. This will be our only worship service that day. To you hearty 8:00 am service-goers, take it easy and sleep an extra hour that morning; to the faithful 11:30 am folks, I know you can rise and shine a little earlier!


  • After having some experience with the food pantry, we are working to refine our process and our requests for donations based on what we have heard our guests appreciated the most. 


  • Parish nurses to attend national health ministry conference

    Cindy and Suzi are headed to Kentucky on September 10 to attend the National Health Ministry Association Annual Meeting and Conference. This year’s conference is entitled “The Sacred Practice of Caring: Working Together for Healthier Communities.”


  • My dear St. John’s family,
     
    It is with bittersweet sadness that I write this letter informing you that I am resigning my call to serve as Minister of Word and Sacrament with the congregation of St. John's. I have accepted a call in the Rocky Mountain Synod as Assistant to the Bishop for Faith Formation and Candidacy and will be departing to begin my service there at the end of the month.
